DIY Lara Bars: Chocolate Brownie

DIY Lara Bars: Chocolate Brownie

Making my own Lara bars is a product of one Friday morning of errands gone horribly wrong. One day I went for a haircut and had to stop for groceries. I usually have Fridays off to myself, but Justin was at home from work recovering […]

Salted Caramel Cookie Dough Protein Balls

Salted Caramel Cookie Dough Protein Balls

Protein balls are my jam. I whip them up without even really thinking these days. And then I just eat them all in a couple days because I reach into my fridge and grab one…five times a day. It’s bad. But at least they are […]

Chocolate Covered Protein Brownie Balls

Chocolate Covered Protein Brownie Balls

These protein balls were made in a rush on Wednesday morning because I remembered that on Thursday evening I was holding my first Core class – abs and nutrition! I am so excited that I have four people signed up for it and it’s going to […]

Omega-3 Packed Protein Brownie Bites

Omega-3 Packed Protein Brownie Bites

So these protein brownies came about because I’m trying out this modified detox diet (via the D.Tox program at Lifetime Fitness). It’s modified because I’m adjusting the rules a bit to fit my lifestyle/goals but here are the things I’m following: No added sugar (means […]

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I love looking at hummus flavors in the store and then copying them. Hummus is healthier and cheaper to make yourself. Plus it’s quick and easy. It’s a win-win. I wanted to make a roasted red pepper flavor for a while now, but red peppers themselves […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk Protein Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk Protein Bars

Another protein bar variation using my gluten-free, dairy-free base recipe. I’m loving making these now that I’ve got plant protein to use because I just cannot bake anything with whey that doesn’t taste like cardboard. These ones held together a lot better than some of […]

Coconut Key Lime Pie Protein Bars

Coconut Key Lime Pie Protein Bars

As much of a chocaholic I am, these were actually one of my favorites. I baked them thinking I’d bring samples in to work on a Saturday but they were so good I kept them for myself. The one issue I have with this recipe […]

Snicker’s Protein Bars: Vegan, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free

Snicker’s Protein Bars: Vegan, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free

I made these for our 60-Day-Challenge weigh in weekend a few weeks ago at Lifetime. I cut them into bite sized samples and gave them out to participants to show how you can make healthy delicious things with our vegan protein powder. Before deciding to […]

Caramelized Onion and Paprika Hummus

Caramelized Onion and Paprika Hummus

One day Justin had a coupon for Sabra’s hummus. Good stuff really but everyone here should know by now I prefer to make things from scratch without all the additives in them. However, the flavor we picked happened to be caramelized onion & paprika. I […]

Chickpea Protein Cookie Dough Balls

Chickpea Protein Cookie Dough Balls

These cookie dough protein balls have a secret ingredient in them that gives them just the right texture and an additional protein and fiber punch to them – chickpeas! The first time I made them, Justin tried some and loved them – and he’s my […]
